Abstract. A full understanding of radar backscatter from urban areas is necessary in order to develop a robust methodology for monitoring and classifying urban characteristics using remotely sensed Synthetic Aperture Radar images.This paper examines the dominant backscattering mechanisms such as single bounce from roofs, double bounce from wall-ground structures and possibly triple bounce from wall-wall-ground structures, and their relative contributions to the backscatter. With the use of quad-polarized image data such as those acquired by the NASA/JPL AirSAR system, the backscatter can be decomposed into components caused by different backscattering mechanisms, offering a promise for urban monitoring and classification.
